I have been making skins for evox for about a month now, But alot of them have been buggered up. Like my latest led zep skin. My tv is cutting the images short so i was wondering what size of pics i should be using what i mean by what size is the pixels.
I have a 20 inch samsung.

Hm?, not sure what you mean by cut off really.
Try using the "EvoX Skinner v1.2.7" when creating skins, it has an option with guidelines,
so you can see what will end up inside the viewing area.

It`s normal for the picture to be cut off to a small amount, just to fit all diffrent tellevision sets.

Any image size will do, the will be automaticly resized anyway.
But if you want a proper size, the choose: 640x480 pixels.

Side Note:
Widescreen telly`s do tend to stretch out the images and will look a bit odd.

This is a standard 640*480 skin template.

The black 'outer' portion, is what evox cuts off. The white 'inner' portion is what shows up on your television. If you've got a good template to start with, your skins will always fit and look good.
